Introduction: JonnyBGood's Mousetrap Powered Knex Gun V1
Mousetrap and a gun apparently work pretty good together. How did this gun come about? Well this idea started with PotatoCoffee's link to https://www.instructables.com/id/Red-Impact---Perfect-Duck-s-K-nex-gun./ . There I saw that they used a spring and thought "Wow that's different, what do I use with knex that's different." and poof I looked at the floor and saw one of the three mousetraps I use with my knex. This gun kinda looks like a P90 but I didn't want to insult the gun or anyones eyes by calling it a P90 so it became my Mousetrap gun. I'll try modding it this week to see if I can get better results for V2.
Looks OK Clip is not very efficent due to inexperience
Functional Mousetrap sometimes get caught on the side of gun
Lightweight Range? Its best shot went maybe 5ft horizontal
Strong construction (overall pathetic.. needs a little more work, but I was excited to share it)
Open canvas for modifications (can't wait to see what people come up with!)
If anyone wants a step-by-step guide drop me a comment and at latest I'll make it next weekend.
